|Professional audio production, editing, and mixing techniques - Dowse, Justin Michael|
The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate professional and efficient music production and music mixing techniques. This is not meant to be a definitive answer to the endless approaches that can be used in music production and mixing. Instead, it is intended to aid learning in a profession where there are no black and white answers since choices in music production and mixing are highly dependent upon the engineer's preferences...

|The Effects of governance corruption on education budgets and income in central and eastern Europe - Hannaway, Tamara Lynn|
This thesis addresses economic development in the context of endogenous corruption. We also ask whether economic growth exacerbates poverty or income inequality. The evidence to date is mixed. The thesis examines relationships among and between defined constraints on economic development by offering policy makers a unique method of measuring governance cor-ruption’s effects on education budgets and individual income...

|ENERGY HARVESTING FROM MICROBIAL FUEL CELL USING SELF-SYNCHRONOUS FLYBACK CONVERTER - Alaraj, Muhannad|
Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) use biodegradable matter, such as wastewater and animal droppings to generate electrical energy. To harvest the energy from MFC, power electronic converters have recently been used because of their advantages, such as the ability to store the harvested energy and the ability to control MFC voltage. Although power electronic converters have advantages to be used to harvest the energy, the diode based energy harvesters suffer from the low efficiency because of the diode...

|The dialectical environment of the mind: a philosophical foundation for biomimicry in the theories of G.W.F. Hegel and Jean Piaget - Windle, Robert Richard, III|
Biomimicry is a technological approach to engaging with the natural world which looks to nature as an intellectual source to solve human problems. The current problems of environmental degradation and the challenges of long-term sustainable production have given rise to the practice of biomimicry. This new form of technologically engaging with the world is reflective of a certain relationship between self and object...

|Localized motion control of dynamically simulated elastic models - Greway, Anthony Robert|
Physics based simulations have been flourishing for many years and provide us with an excellent method to formulate the overall motion of an elastic model. Inherently these simulations are limited by sensitive initial conditions and other material constraints that make it difficult to achieve an intended motion. Point and key-frame controls have more complete control over a deformable object and offer the ability to place a node at any position, but this can prove to be very difficult to manage ...

|PRACTICAL METHODS FOR CRITICAL LOAD DETERMINATION AND STABILITY EVALUATION OF STEEL STRUCTURES - Fernandez-Mora, Pedro|
The critical load of a column, compression member or structure, calculated from a linear elastic analysis of an idealized perfect structure, does not necessary correspond with the load at which instability of a real structure occurs. This calculated critical load does not provide sufficient information to determine when failure, due to instability of the structure as a whole, will occur. To obtain this information it is necessary to consider the initial geometrical imperfections, eccentricities ...

|Application of thyristor-controlled series reactor for fault current limitation and power system stability enhancement - Kang, Bu Il|
Various types of Fault Current Limiters (FCLs) have been proposed and proven that they offer many advantages with respect to transmission losses, voltage quality, and power system stability. However, those including the Solid-State Fault Current Limiters (SSFCL), the most advanced type of FCL, have been mainly focusing on the FCL system itself such as optimization of components, improving the efficiency and reducing the cost...

|Heidegger's discourse on Heraclitus's Concepts of Logos and Aletheia - Rainer, Kristopher Stephen|
his paper maintains that the work of Heidegger on Heraclitus' fragments 50 on logos and 16 on aletheia, represent a viable alternative to the "Metaphysics" of Occident Thinking in the early 20th century, which has culminated in the mindset of the our technological age. It further explores an alternative aspiration for language and methodology that is able to serve as a viable alternative for the exploration of Heraclitus' texts, given their fragmentary format and obscure nature...

|A design-based approach to teaching sustainability - Walter, Kim R.|
We live on a finite ecological system, yet consume as though resources are unlimited. Current environmental data suggests many in the developed world are living beyond what the earth is able to sustain. The paradigms in which we operate continue to support a path of constant consumption that continues to exacerbate this problem. Technology educators can and should play a valuable role in working with students to question these paradigms through lessons that begin to engage students toward thinki...

Microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology could provide a low cost alternative to conventional aerated wastewater treatment, however there has been little comparison between MFC and aeration treatment using real wastewater substrate. This study attempts to directly compare the wastewater treatment efficiency and energy consumption and generation among three reactor systems, a traditional aeration process, a simple submerged MFC configuration, and a control reactor acting similar as natural lagoons...

|Lost in translation: the queens of Beowulf - Horton-Depass, Laura Ann|
The poem Beowulf has been translated hundreds of times, in part or in whole. In past decades translators such as Howell Chickering and E. Talbot Donaldson firmly adhered to formal equivalency, following the original text line-by-line if not word-by-word. Such translations are useful for Anglo-Saxon students but cannot reach a larger audience because they are unwieldy and often incomprehensible. In the past fifty years, though, a group of translators with different philosophies has taken up the t...

|Performance analysis of adaptive blind equalization algorithms for noisy fir and iir channels - Althahab, Awwab Qasim|
This thesis addresses the problem of blind adaptive equalization of finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR) channels (their characteristics are unknown) in the fractionally sampling scenario. An adaptive equalizer is used at the receiver to compensate the time dispersion induced by noisy communication channels and eliminate the effect of Inter-Symbol-Interference (ISI). In other words, the overall our system model, which is a cascade connection of the channel and equali...

|Light Scattering Properties Vary Across Different Regions of the Adult Mouse Brain - Al-Juboori, Saif|
Recently developed optogenetic tools provide powerful approaches to optically excite or inhibit neural activity. In a typical in-vivo experiment, light is delivered to deep nuclei via an implanted optical fiber. Light intensity attenuates with increasing distance from the fiber tip, determining the volume of tissue in which optogenetic proteins can successfully be activated. However, whether and how this volume of effective light intensity varies as a function of brain region or wavelength has n...

|Examination of Acceptance as a Mediator of Anxiety Sensitivity and Perceived Disability in an Online Chronic Illness Support Group Sample - Herbst, Andrew George|
Chronic illnesses account for 70% of deaths in the United States alone. The cost associated with these illnesses was $1.3 trillion in the U.S. as of 2003, with an estimated future cost of $4.2 trillion in 2023. Additionally, chronic pain affects roughly 50 million people in the U.S. and costs over $70 billion annually in healthcare costs and lost productivity. A need exists to identify more effective forms of chronic illness management; instead of focusing on the treatment of a diagnosis specifi...

|The dream of modernity: finding meaning in the modern tradition - Mitchell, Galen Patrick|
This paper argues that in order for philosophy to move forward without undue baggage, post-modernism should be addressed from the analytic perspective--including the contemporary philosophy that has grown out of it. This paper takes up that task with relation to Derrida's "Diff�rance" through a discussion of language and meaning in Frege, Russell, Quine and Paul Churchland. In discussing the differences between these thinkers' theories of meaning we can see that post-modernism, at least with r...
